Editor’s note: The state of Israel has enjoyed what amounts to a credit card with a balance of billions of dollars. The American people are obliged to pay the bill.

An Italian journalist who was detained by the Israel Defense Forces following the raid on the Gaza-bound flotilla says his credit card was used to purchase items after it was confiscated by the Israeli authorities.

Manolo Luppichini was aboard the Sfintoni-8000, one of the smaller boats in the flotilla, when the naval commandos took it over. “Nobody was killed on our boat,” Luppichini said in a telephone call from Italy. “We tried a little passive resistance around the boat’s bridge. The soldiers fired paint balls and two people were hurt by stun [taser] guns.”

After the Israel Navy took over the boat, he said, the soldiers searched every passenger and confiscated everything they found. “They took two cameras, microphones, a stand and other equipment from me and my photographer. They took one of the cameras as I was taking photographs,” says Luppichini, who was working for Italy’s RAI-3 television and an Italian-Swiss television channel when he was detained.
